Smoothing the Path for Transfer Students
Students often enter community college with eventual plans to transfer to a four-year institution. Few, however, manage to do so successfully, and those who do face an uphill battle to graduation. With college enrollment in decline — and especially steep for community colleges, in the wake of the pandemic — what can colleges do to fulfill the promise of a four-year degree?

In the Virtual Forum, Smoothing the Path for Transfer Students, a panel of experts gathers to examine the realities of today and offer suggestions for how colleges can improve the transition from community college to a four year university. Our panel will seek to answer:

- How can colleges re-evaluate policies that result in credit loss?
- What barriers block the progress of transfer students, particularly minority and low-income students?
- What partnerships can be formed between community colleges and four-year institutions to help boost enrollment?

Panelists include:
- Alfred Herrera, Ass't Vice Provost Academic Partnerships and Director, Center for Community College Partnerships
- Davis Jenkins, Senior Research Scholar, Community College Research Center
- Jessica Lopez-Velez, the Director of the Transfer Student Recruitment and LINK Program at Florida Atlantic University
- Janet Marling, Executive Director of the National Institute for the Study of Transfer Students
- Michael Morgan, transfer student, Oglethorpe University
